One obstacle to cloud migration is a fear of incurring downtime in central business functions that run on legacy systems.  Ensono has automated processes to migrate your workloads to AWS without interrupting existing systems. According to a recent Deloitte survey1, IT leaders increasingly seek out hybrid migration models where mainframes and cloud technology can happily coexist. Ensono’s AWS consultants create an application migration roadmap, focusing on core system improvements rather than reinventing what already works, and migrating workloads when it makes sense.

Improved governance and security

According to Flexera, security and governance are two of the top three cloud challenge in 2021.1 Don’t let a cloud first strategy put security and governance last. Lack of visibility, control and expertise can present risk to your organization — particularly its security and governance controls. Ensono’s AWS consultants design and deliver a secure, compliant AWS environment tailored to your regulatory and compliance requirements.

Escalating costs

Organizations self-report that 30% of their cloud spend is wasted.2 Cloud pricing structures can be difficult to decipher and you are probably not taking full advantage of AWS cost opportunities like AWS Reserved Instances, Spot Instances, transition to PaaS services and migration funding programs. Avoid lock-in and unlock savings with Ensono’s flexible consumption-based pricing.
